August Currently:)

I can hardly believe that it is August!!  
Wow.  The summer is just flying by!  
I am just thankful that it is not B2S time for me yet! :)  There is only one thing to do on the 1st of the month...link up with the FAB Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the new Currently!
Listening:  HGTV is my go to channel for background noise.  Love some home reno!
Loving: I can hardly believe that I figured it out!  Well, thanks to Jivey's awesome tutorial linked up to Ms. Fultz!!  I made a fan freebies tab on my facebook page.  I am especially proud that I figured out how to make a custom cover for the tab using ppt all on my own.  I'll pat myself on the back for something checked off this to-do list!  Hopefully, I can update the freebies often! :)
Thinking: Yeah, no brainer there but that is really what I am thinking right now!  I won't freak out that I have so much to do...I won't freak out
Wanting: We have our annual (60+ years) family reunion this weekend that lasts Saturday at 3 pm until Sunday at 5 pm.  It is a lot of fun in the woods at a cabin and a pond to boot!  In my kids' age groups alone, there are five boys who are three years old and five girls who are six years old!  I am organizing kids' games this year and I just finished the baskets for prizes last night!  It will be fun!! 
Needing: I finally have a day to go into my room tomorrow and get some work done.  First we are having a team meeting to discuss a possible change next year.  I'll let you know once it is "official"!
B2s Must Haves: I always have to add more books to my classroom library each year.  As far as new organizer thingamabobs, I am always adding those too in the hopes that I will be SO much more organized each year than I left things the year before!  A new pair of shoes is a must have too...preferably comfortable ones!!  It is rough going from flip flops for two months to "real shoes!".

Oh, ONE more thing that I am "Loving" is our puppy, Porter!  We have had him almost 3 weeks now and he is such a B.A.B.Y.  I can't go anywhere without taking him along because 1) he is just so cute and 2) he is a baby and you never know what trouble he might find.  
Isn't he adorable?  When he is tired, he just lays where ever you put him like the pic on the right:)

I am looking forward to reading many more Currently's!!  


  1. My feet always hurt the first few days as I get used to 'real' shoes and standing for so long again! Enjoy your reunion!

  2. I can never have enough books either, or organizing supplies! I agree about the shoes too! I will definitely miss wearing flip flops all day, but at least I have another month to savor!

  11. Your furbaby made me smile today. Much needed! I am off to create my 'Currently' list. Is it okay if I don't put shoes on it?

  12. Aww..super cute puppy! Maybe when my girls get a little older.... I checked out your FB Fan Tab-awesome job! I may have to add that to my summer to-do list.

  14. I think its a fact that the summer months are shorter, isn't it?

    Hope you had a great time at your family reunion. Sounds like so much fun!!

    Your puppy is adorable! What is it about dogs sleeping on their back?? :)
